Sunderland sign Patrick van Aanholt from Chelsea (‘undisclosed fee’)
— Sunderland AFC (@SunderlandAFC) July 25, 2014
Sunderland have signed left-back Patrick van Aanholt from Chselsea.
I say ‘Chelsea’, but the Dutch international’s link to Jose Mourinho’s side has been purely theoretical, having been one of Chelsea’s vast loan colony sprawled across Europe, clustered mostly at Vitesse Arnhem.
After signing for Chelsea in 2009, Van Aanholt was sent out on loan for 5 successive seasons, and made just two Premier League appearances for The Blues.
Van Aanholt becomes the Black Cats’ fourth summer signing, with Billy Jones, Costel Pantilimon and Jordi Gomez already arriving on Wearside.
No figure has been provided on van Aanholt’s Sunderland move.
Yet another ‘undisclosed fee’…
